Book Review - Get Your Summer Strategy On!

About the Book
College admissions have grown increasingly competitive over the last decade. It takes more than a solid GPA and respectable test scores to gain entry into an elite university. Today, an applicant needs a stellar résumé to show meaningful dedication outside the classroom and boost his or her chances of acceptance to a top college. In Get Your Summer Strategy On, Jessica Givens gives students step-by-step a guide to maximizing the potential of the summer months. Givens reveals the different résumé bullets students must complete, and she highlights the many programs available to students in the know. By following her simple guide, students are guaranteed to change their admissions potential and broaden their horizons, turning their applications into college admissions gold.

My Take on the Book
As someone who works in college admissions type work this book had a number of great things to share in regards to helping you set yourself apart from the fray when it comes to college admissions. There were a number of great practical ideas that were easy to implement and some that would take a bit more time and effort. I enjoyed how the author has done a great job at pulling these tips together in an easy to understand framework that both student and parent can understand and get through in a very short amount of time. A great book that has too many great ideas to miss!
